Minister of Finance, Ardwell Irion reversed the decision taken by government several months ago to cease the acceptance of business and personal cheques, due to the number of returned cheques received by government.
In an effort to accommodate taxpayers and limit obstacles which will obstruct person and businesses from paying taxes owed, the Minister has retracted the decision not to accept cheques.
The ministry of finance is working on a solution.
Payment by cheque will not be accepted from persons or businesses with a track record of issuing “bounced” cheques.
The Minister urges taxpayers to use the online banking payment system to make their payments.
